Civil Engineer from Imperial College of Science Technology & Medicine in London, followed by a masters in industrial design from the Royal College of Art.
As a child, Michael was already fascinated by the amazing lighting solutions from Flos. He grew up in a small town on Cyprus that was home to a lamp shop. He often went there to admire the many lighting solutions from the Italian brand.
The lovely and bold lamps are often inspired by everyday moments—from a juggler perfectly balancing their balls to the way electrical wires connect electrical pylons in the landscape. Elegant lamps that both create a comfortable light and have a sculptural expression, whether on or off. At first glance, his designs are incredibly minimalistic, but they are often surprisingly detailed, featuring blown glass, tailored metals, and elegant lighting effects.
